    Can anyone with first-hand experience with both ATV2 and ATV3 please tell me if there is any noticable difference in UI responsiveness when using YouTube or video podcasts?

    In other words, does the supposedly faster processor and better wifi antenna make any perceivable difference when it comes to populating lists of videos, starting videos, and/or fast-forwarding through videos from those two services?

    I have an ATV2 but have no need for the features provided by a jailbroken device, so I thought I would take advantage of the current craze where some people are willing to swap an ATV3 for an ATV2.

    They feel about the same.

    I sold my ATV2s for ATV3s.

    look pretty similar to me also, although the ATV3 is marginally faster when displaying a page full of movie/tv show pictures, and the response when in a video is better too.
    the 1080p also looks beautiful...
